IS THIS TRUE OR WHAT?
I would be willing to bet that most of us over 50, woke up one day and looked into the mirror and thought, “Damn, when did I become this old person when I do not feel old inside?”
I know for me, when I write or tell someone I am 61, it always surprises me that I am really that age. It just feels false. I am now older than many of my relatives who died when I thought they were “old”. I wonder, did they feel young inside, too? Or because they lived in a whole different era, were they “old” before their time?
With this in mind, I would like to propose a new classification of what to call us besides “Senior citizens” since anyone 55 to 120 is lumped together in one class.
Here is my suggestion (and please feel free to share this with everyone you know who is 50 or better)!
NEW CLASSIFICATIONS OF AGING BY QUEEN ROBYN
50-59 years~THE FRESHMEN CLASS OF AGING
60-69 years~THE SOPHOMORE CLASS OF AGING
70-79 years~THE JUNIOR CLASS OF AGING
80-89 years~THE SENIOR CLASS OF AGING
90-99 years~ THE UNDERGRAD CLASS OF AGING
100-110 years~ THE GRADUATE CLASS OF AGING
111 years and up~ THE ALUMNI YEARS OF AGING
Don’t you just love it? I am so comfortable being called a SOPHOMORE citizen. It makes me feel so much younger than being called a “Senior citizen”. If we have to have labels on our age, let’s change them to reflect where we really are in the SCHOOL OF THE SECOND HALF OF LIFE.
So, what do you think of this? Are you on board? Will you classify yourself now as one of the above? Let’s spread this around. Let’s make it viral so everyone can see it and we will all have something else to talk about other than The Donald, Bathroomgate, how Prince died (does it matter? The man was a genius no matter what) and anything to do with the Kardashian Klan! Let’s change how the world classifies us that are over 50!!!!
WE STILL ROCK N ROLL, BABY.
Sending you all groovy vibes…..
Queen Robyn, Sophomore citizen and damn proud of it!
